My kids and grand kids have discovered Merchants Mill Pond State Park. They are big fans of shows like "Swamp People" and such. The park is the northernmost range for alligators. They want to see one so bad...so far, no luck but they did see a rather large cottonmouth moccasin last Saturday. Sometimes I fret about these shows. Things ain't always like they appear on TV. I have tried to instill in them the fact that they should leave such creatures be. Moccasins can be mighty aggressive this time of year.

'highly recommendeds' of mine (so far) by country: india, panama, colombia, pakistan, iraq....
I find "Locked up Abroad" really interesting too Vit. I thought we were pretty informed about what wouldn't get us thrown in the clink abroad until I read this news report the other day. US tourist faces trial in Turkey over 'stones' - SCNow: World
We also like to bring souvenir rocks home, although we are about to leave for Hawaii in a few minutes, and we know all about not bringing home rocks from there with the wrath of Pele.

Another The Voice fan? I LOVE it! I DVR it for my mom. Who is your favorite judge? I'm stuck between Adam and Blake. My mom LOVES Blake. Last year CeeLo made us both fall out of our chairs laughing sometimes.

I used to watch it when it was on A&E and Ozzie was doing the theme song for it. The new one is just Bog, Beth and Leland. I always thought he was hot, although I'm probably old enough to be his mama.

I like Baby Lyssa. Is it one before she got married and had baby #2 or after?

Vitauta and I are both The Voice fans. I am very partial to Adam.
